3 College Sophomore

Weather: Not bad. The winters tend to last long....

3 College Freshman

Weather: Typical New England never know what you're gonna get

3 College Freshman

Weather: Brutal winters and surprisingly hot summers are common for Tufts, the latter only an issue really because of the lack of air conditioning in most dorms, however. It's what you'd expect at New England: certainly the summers are cooler than most of the country, but they can still get hot, and winter starts in November and ends in March.

3 College Senior

Weather: Cold winter, hot summer, but fall and spring are wonderful (when they last)

3 College Freshman

Weather: I'm not a big fan of the snow but it can be very pretty sometimes. The winter lasts forever but the summer/spring is extremely beautiful.

Tufts is in New England, so you’re going to get weather from all seasons. It is really hot from May to August, extraordinarily rainy in March and April, and pretty much cold and snowy the rest of the year. Fall semester, it will snow probably just a few times, but despite the name, “spring” semester is much, much colder, and students will return to campus to see it covered in snow. Don’t be surprised to see it snowing in April and even May.

The good news is that the campus is so beautiful that all seasons are pleasant (to an extent, of course), even if they’re not always comfortable. If you are looking for warm weather year-round, obviously Tufts isn’t for you. To survive, a sense of humor about the weather is all it takes. Feel free to make jokes about the occasional floods from all the rain or how Tufts is too cheap to air condition the dorms. And when it snows, feel free to grab a sled, a dining hall tray, or even your roomate’s mattress, and go sledding down the President’s Lawn!
